When everyone including him is having a convo, jump in. Try to reply to what he says but not weirdly because it might leave a bad first impression. Try to find out what he likes and start a convo with everybody about it and maybe it'll catch his attention. Just start off slowly I guess.
Inhale deeply, exhale, be calm, and then, you can talk to him. The advantage here is that you can look at your food if you get shy looking at him. And try to smile :) You could get to be good friends. Gby
I know the feeling. I like a guy and i was afraid to talk to him but one of my friends made him come talk to me so i was forced to talk. A good way is to just do it, dont think about it. I know it's hard. The thing I did was I asked him for his number and we texted.
